With property prices still currently high, and incomes not stretching as fair as hoped, some mortgage lenders are accepting applications for shared ownership mortgages. It is usually first-time buyers who opt to go down the shared ownership route. Some new build properties are available to buy on a shared ownership basis but the majority of properties being sold on this basis are former housing association or council properties. Shared ownership is where part of the property is bought - with a mortgage - and the other part is rented. Shared ownership is usually between 25-75% of the value of the house or flat with the balance being made up with rent.
When the property is sold, it is on the same basis - so if you bought your house with a 50% mortgage and rented the other 50%, when you decide to sell the property it will be split 50-50. Any increase in the value on the part of the property which you own is then yours, and the company who have rented the other part with you will receive any increase in value on their half of the property.
